Did you hear about the scandal going on with actor Columbus Short? Well, his wife is filing divorce claiming that he threatened to kill her and himself. The Huffington Post has the story:
“Scandal” star Columbus Short was handed divorce papers and a restraining order after he allegedly threatened to kill his wife, actress Tuere Tanee McCall.
TMZ reports McCall filed a restraining order against Short after an incident on April 7 during which he allegedly held a knife to her throat and threatened murder-suicide. Purportedly intoxicated, he poured wine on her before pinning her to a couch, questioning her about affairs while wielding a knife.
Roland Martin scored an exclusive interview with the actor for “NewsOne Now” and asked him directly if there are any truths to the claims.
“Life has the best scriptwriters of all time. That’s all I can say about that,” Short replied with a chuckle. “I don’t mean to laugh but it read outlandish and it sounds even more outlandish coming out of your mouth.”
